7.9.9 Release Notes

October 28, 2015

The new maintenance release 7.9.9 is available for general use. This release includes bug fixes and improvements in core, enterprise and plugins. To know the changed artifacts, refer the section Artifacts version and below JIRA links. For Hippo Enterprise Customers and Partners new Upgrade Verifier from CMS 7.8.10 to CMS 7.9.9 is available.

New projects can be bootstrapped using new essentials, to start follow trails page.

We encourage all projects to remain on the regular maintenance release. Using a tagged artifact that is not yet part of a maintenance release should only be done if there is a specific reason and only after testing in your specific project setup.
